About 500,000 for a average smoker.


According to official 'statistics', the 'average' smoker smokes around 100 cigarettes a week or 5,000 a year. Assuming that the 'average' smoker smokes throughout his or her adult life and that smoking knocks 12 years off a smoker's life, the total number smoked would be more like 250,000.

For comparison, exposure to secondhand smoke in the workplace is estimated by independent studies to be equivalent to smoking between 2 and 6 cigarettes a YEAR.
